  6. How to Create A CloudFormation Template Using AWS

    How to Create A CloudFormation Template Using AWS

    Categories: Cloud Computing

    Since the evolution of Amazon Web Services as a mainstay in virtual computing, many AWS technologies have been created specifically to make cloud management easier. Among these products is AWS CloudFormation — a streamlined service that allows all AWS users to model AWS products for personal or professional use. AWS CloudFormation also allows you to reconcile native AWS services with various third-party programs, helping you predictably manage AWS platforms as they evolve.

    By letting a user deploy entities like virtual machines and security appliances on the AWS cloud platform, CloudFormation has essentially bolstered the security of the online cloud environment. Users deploy CloudFormation templates to define the AWS resources they want to create and add to their existing AWS hierarchy. These templates — individual text files — comprise the tech stack that makes your AWS infrastructure unique.
